Notes

*with Airto Moreira, Flora Purim and Diana Moreira
# with Airto Moriera

These were exceedingly loud concerts. So loud that our clothes were pinned to us for all 3 nights of the shows. We experienced brickwalling to a degree, and it is present in the first set of the show, as well as the second set, but not as apparent. It was so loud that even after realizing that we were brickwalling the hrtf rig, and changing to the oade/schoeps ortf rig that was also present, even the oade/schoeps rig experienced some brickwalling, as can be heard. None of it is overbearing. Perhaps it might be more palettable in knowing that it could not be avoided in this instance, even by the best of rigs. It was just an incredibly loud series of concerts.All three nights of this run are from the exact same spot, as marked by a piece of gaffers tape on the vinyl floor covering. The second run of shows later in this year were also from this same spot. So all 6 shows of the '89 Dead Forum runs are from the same spot, the Impact Zone (fob/dfc)There were dead crew members in the light rack looking for, pointing out, and shutting down FOB tapers during this run of shows.enjoy!peace and wellness to you and yours

Mike

additional notes:

- downsampled to 16/44.1 using Adobe Audition 1.5, dithered with iZotope Ozone. New flacs, etc created. Apart from retracking to fit on 3 discs, the only other change made was to discard most of the silence at the end of d3t07.
- there is a sub-second gap between d1t05-06, the latter track is slightly clipped at the start, just a couple of notes missing..

Subject: a cut not mentioned
There is a cut that I believe is not mentioned in info file. Black Peter is missing from "...in pain" to a few notes into the solo. Unfortunate cut but good recording otherwise
